For another year dot2dot Nursery Insurance has renewed our patronage of the local kid’s charity Bolton Lads and Girls Club. We’re proud to announce this extension of the partnership we’ve built up over the years.
dot2dot over the years have provided various initiatives to help raise money for BLGC. From providing Christmas hampers to some of the most vulnerable families in the district to running competitions to name our female mascot. Alongside this, we have a continued patronage which runs throughout the year and helps the club continue the valuable work they do on a day to day basis.
We believe that having gained from the local community and our head office being in Bolton it is a privilege for us to be able to give back.
BLGC is over 120 years old, the club was one of the first organisations in the North West to recognise the importance of providing young people with a safe place to spend their time and help them build confidence and self-achievement as well as building an inclusive environment.
“The Club aims to help the young people of Bolton become the happy, caring and responsible citizens of tomorrow by providing somewhere to go that’s fit for purpose, something to do that is developmental and challenging and above all someone to talk to who genuinely is interested.
We deliver a wide variety of programmes to young people each week ranging from recreational opportunities, performing arts, and a diverse range of sporting activities.
We also provide intensive support, guidance and training for some of the town’s most at risk youngsters via mentoring in one-to-one and group sessions.
The Club is committed to providing opportunities that recognise and respect cultural differences and encourage integration, and inclusive activities that enable full participation from all of the town’s communities and young people of all abilities.” Read more here
